Product category: Machines for the production of Tape, twine, wires


COMPOSITE STRAP Line is the latest technology developed by SIMA to support customer needs in delivery the full range of packaging commodities to the final market.
Composite strapping tape is a PP tape with embedded PET multifilament yarn with a superb shock absorption, lightness and re-tensionability suitable to secure different product shape and dimensions.
Further it is easy and safe to be used and thanks to the soft skin does not damage the good packed with guarantee of breaking load up to more than 1.600Kg (34mm strap).
SIMA product range covers the full set of strap dimensions requested on the market from the lightest 13mm up to the strongest 34mm width.

SIMA brand TECHNO STRAP extrusion line is nowadays the best solution for plastic strapping tape producers. The key of SIMA TECHNO STRAP success is based on reliability of the extrusion process guarantying the highest efficiency level in term of production capacity and quality of the final product, both for PP and PET strap.
TECHNO STRAP extrusion range means several models lines, each one with own design, with smallest capacity from 1.400Tons/year up to more than 8.000Tons/year of SUPERSTRAP technology.
All lines capable to produce all the strap sizes requested by the market from 4mm up to 32mm respecting the most restricted standard of quality for dimensions, weight, braking load, elongation.

SIMA continuous innovation is driven by internal research on top performances solution due to know how on final product and methodologies to treat it and cooperation with the main players in plastic industries for plastic materials/additives improvement and new technologies available like filtering, recycling and V grade enhancement.
SIMA PP/PET TECHNO STRAP extrusion line is designed, assembled and tested in house from our engineer team to meet customer expectation and trust.
SIMA extrusion, spinning, stretching and winding devices/process is suitable for both PP and PET (100% bottle flakes) plastic strap each type with dedicated parameters and accessories set to suit best performance both in automatic and manual strapping packaging machine.

TECHNO COMBI is an impact modifier (anti-splicing) developed by SIMA for the strap producer to improve the quality of the PET strapping tape.

PET strap during stretching process is subjected at a molecular chain longitudinal orientation loosing transversal force and compactness.

This happens when raw material processed is recycled bottle flakes with low viscosity level.

The additive TECHNO COMBI is available already green color ( in this case we can remove the master color ); other colors (or transparent) at special request.

Thanks to its high performance anti-splitting proprieties can be added up to 1,5% (average 0,8%) to the PET strap blend to rebuild the transversal molecular connection lost during the stretching process.

About us

Company details

SIMA was founded in 1947 by two young men grown and trained in the Irish textile area: Alberto Mazzoni and Gino Serra.
In its beginning SIMA manufactured ancillary machines for spinning and twisting such as winders and other finishing machines like balling machines and small twisters.
Later on, SIMA specialized themselves in the manufacturing of machinery for ropes and twisted yarns, becoming a leader in this field, strengthening SIMA presence all over the world.
Thousands SIMA machines are running in every continent, from North and South America, to Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania.

Early in the ‘70s, SIMA realized that the future would have demanded a quick technological innovation and therefore considerably strengthened its research and development departments. The result was a launch onto the market of a series of models of rope layers and twisters absolutely revolutionary which traced a new path in the field of twine and rope making machinery.

At the end of the ’70s, the importance of supplying turn-key projects to customers became evident to SIMA headquarters, including lines for yarn manufacturing, completing its production upstream of the twisting and rope making phase.
Aiming at not taking away technical resources from its widely accepted range of products, this development was carried out through the introduction of a new division, called PROMATECH, specialized in the manufacturing of complete extrusion lines for processing plastic material and fibers in particular.

For more then three decades SIMA has been manufacturing a very wide range of extrusion lines.
The innovation and research approach of this new division was immediately recognised not only by the market, but also by the Italian Government, and in fact in 1988, PROMATECH, division of SIMA, was included by Italian Government  in the list of the lab industry, certifying the character of innovation of this company.

Due to the production increase and the introduction of new technologies a radical reorganization and further strengthening of SIMA was then necessary,  with subsequent move to the very modern factory in Crespellano, near Bologna, spread on a surface of 40.000 square metres, 20.000 of which assigned to production departments and 3.000 to office and services, and where more than 100 people are working.

Since 2013 SIMA Srl is 100% owned by Dietze+Schell with facilities in Germany,  Czech Republic and the U.S. The spirit of the new company SIMA Srl was to continue the manufacturing of the same production range as in the past, but taking advantage also of the synergies of both companies (SIMA Srl & D+S) that combined have a common experience of more than 120 years in manufacturing textile machinery improvements in technology and always more complete solutions are ensured also by this new scenario.

In October 2015 Sima and Techno Plastic have joined forces to build the number one company in the field of twisters, rope layers and extrusion systems for strapping, monofilaments and tapes.

Both companies are now part of Dietze & Schell Group, the leading manufacturer of winding, texturizing, and automation solutions for strapping, artificial grass and technical textiles.
